MANCOW MULLER's television simulcast of his TALK RADIO NETWORK TRN-FM syndicated show is minus one Producer/Director less than a week before the show's TV debut, reports TIME OUT CHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER.
Veteran CHICAGO TV producer DON DUPREE, a former director of the syndicated "SISKEL & EBERT & THE MOVIES" and Executive Producer of its successor "EBERT & ROEPER," has exited the project, set to debut MONDAY (10/22) on FOX-owned MY NETWORK TV affiliate WPWR-TV (MY 50)/CHICAGO, FEDER is reporting, with the reason given as a dispute over salary and other assignments unrelated to MANCOW's show. MULLER has begun broadcasting from the FOX CHICAGO studios in preparation for the TV simulcast of two hours of his show, 6-8a (CT) weekdays.
